DIY Wedding. As a visual story teller, I have been thinking a lot lately about the type of weddings I really, really want to photograph in New Zealand and abroad.
Two types of weddings come to mind - a true DIY wedding and a rustic wedding.
The DIY wedding appeals to me for a couple of reasons:
1. Jane and I had a true DIY wedding.
Yep, we did the DIY thing. From the moment we decided to get married to our actual ceremony, was a mere two-weeks. Friends helped us organise our wedding in record time and it is a day I wish I could experience again. Did I mention it was in another country? (I'll save the rest of that story for another post).
2. DIY weddings bring out the creativity in people
As a visual story teller I am a creative person. And because of this I love being around wedding events with creative elements. DIY weddings tend to be a little bit more about creativity, in part because it helps keep the final wedding bill down. I'm totally into that and I love to photograph it.
So here's the deal, if you are doing a wedding on a budget and are looking for a DIY wedding photographer, drop me a line. I'm keen to photograph one and I'm happy to do a deal in the spirit of your wedding being a true DIY wedding.

As for why I want to photograph a rustic or vintage wedding, I'm going to save that for another post.
